Hey dudes, thanks for the replies..

Client GET say it won't accept any encoding format. Why is squid 
compressing it and sending as compressed to a client that explicity says 
it doesn't accept encoding?

Is this really correct? Because no browser is liking it here. Even more, 
I think no data is sent back to the browser, as "Content-Length = 0"
